T+L Reports: Photo Op

The Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson opens in Paris this month, just a stone's throw from the Montparnasse cafés where the photographer and future co-founder of Magnum Photos came of age among Surrealists, Cubists, and the rest of the interwar avant-garde. Far from being a one-man museum (much less a mausoleum), the foundation will not only preserve Cartier-Bresson's own works and papers but also exhibit a range of photographers and other artists. The inaugural show, "Henri Cartier-Bresson's Choices" (May 2 through July), comprises nearly 90 works from documentary photographers past and present—all selected by the man himself, who turns 95 in August. 2 Impasse Lebouis; www.henricartierbresson.org.
